A simple, convenient, and rapid method for determining ammonia in plasma by the glutamate dehydrogenase reaction is described for the centrifugal analyzer. The measuring principle is fixed-time, with NADH as the coenzyme. ADP is added to stabilize glutamate dehydrogenase and prevent interference from endogenous plasma ADP. The reaction is linear to 400(More)
